Many people have trouble sleeping at night because they have insomnia, so they end up watching a whole season of anime all at once.
Even though much high school-based anime, like K-On and Asobi Asobase, have focused on club activities, the upcoming anime Insomniacs After School has a unique idea and will focus on friendship, romance, and a slice of high school life.
The anime Insomniacs After School is based on a Japanese manga with the same name.
The manga is called Kimi Wa Hokago Insomunia in Japanese. Makoto Ojiro wrote and drew the manga, and since 2019, Viz Media has been putting it out in English.
People’s reactions to manga have always been positive, especially in the last few years. When the anime was announced in January 2022, fans thought it would be one of the best shows of the year.
So, here’s everything we know about the upcoming anime Insomniacs After School.
The Story of Insomniacs After School
The plot is simple but interesting. Manga readers will know the story well, and we’ll talk about it in more detail in the review section below. Ganta Nakami is a high school student who lives in the small city of Nanao. He has trouble sleeping.
Because he has trouble sleeping, Ganta gets angry with his classmates and ends up making them dislike him. He finds out about the Astronomy Club observatory at the school festival and decides to sleep there at night.
Even though Ganta knows that someone died in the lab, making it haunted and a place to avoid at night, he doesn’t care at all. He tries to take a nap in the empty astronomy lab at his school, where he meets a girl named Isaki Magari.
Isaki Magari is also unable to sleep, but she is friendly and carefree. As time goes on, the two of them start to become friends, which leads to the re-starting of the dysfunctional astronomical club.
From the way the story is told, we can tell that the slice-of-life anime is about two people who can’t sleep and how they get closer as they try different ways to sleep.

The Actors And Crew of “Insomniacs After School”
The anime only has a few characters because the story is all about the main ones. Ganta Nakami, the male protagonist of the anime, is voiced by Gen Satou, and Isaki Magari, the female protagonist, is voiced by Konomi Tamura.
In recent years, the first one has been in a number of popular anime shows, most notably Chrome in Dr.
Stone and Lightning Genji in One Punch Man.
His other well-known works include Platinum End, Fena: Pirate Princess, Kaguya-Sama: Love is War, and Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury. Konomi Tamura, on the other hand, is new to the business.
She made her debut in 2022 with World’s End Harem and then voiced Emma in the anime Vermeil in Gold. Even though these two play the main characters, here’s a look at the rest of the cast: Natsumi Fujiwara (Spy x Family) will play Kanami Anamizu, Shou Karino (Tokyo Revengers) will play Rui Haida, Lynn (Fire Force) will play Motoko Kanikawa, Mamiko Noto (Fairy Tail) will play Usako Kurashiki, Sumire Morohoshi (The Promised Neverland) will play Mina Nono, Haruka Tomatsu (Sword Art Online) will play Yuki Ikeda, who is known for his work on Blade of the Immortal and The Heroic Legend of Arslan, is in charge of the show.
He is also known for directing the 2013 video game Rain, which was praised by critics. Rintarou Ikeda will write the music for the series and make up the script for the anime based on Makoto Ojiro’s original manga.
He has created and written scripts for a number of popular anime series, such as Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It, The Seven Deadly Sins, Poco’s Udon World, and Love Tyrant.
Yuuki Hayashi, who writes the music for the show, is the best part of the crew, though. If you’ve watched the popular anime shows My Hero Academia and Haikyuu!!
, you’ll know that he has a lot of skills.
Yuuki Fukuda, a character designer who has worked on shows like No Game, No Life, Jujutsu Kaisen, Akame Ga Kill, Fairy Tail, and Vivy: Fluorite Eye’s Song, gives the characters life by recreating the style of the original author.
